    We have purchased an annual pass ans will use for the first time on Nov. 17. How do we get in parking without paying?

    Hi there, Jane! Welcome to planDisney!

    Congratulations on your new Walt Disney World Annual Pass! You have so many magical adventures in store, starting with your first visit in only a few days! Let's make sure you're ready to take full advantage of all the benefits your brand new Annual Pass has to offer.

    Even though you haven't activated your Annual Pass yet, there is still a way to get that complimentary parking perk when you hit the theme parks this week. One option is to show your confirmation email and a photo ID to the Cast Member at the toll booth. The Cast Member may or may not allow you through, but it's always worth a try! If they do ask you to pay, you can have the charge refunded to you at Guest Relations when you stop by to activate your pass and pick up your Admission Cards.

    Another way to make sure your parking is covered is to activate your Annual Pass at the Disney Ticket Center at Disney Springs before you head to the theme parks. This is an especially great option if you'll be in town the day before you plan to visit the parks and can make a quick trip to Disney Springs. Parking there is free, and you can always take a little time for a tasty meal and some shopping before your theme park adventure begins.

    There's a great big beautiful tomorrow waiting for you with your Walt Disney World Annual Pass, Jane! I hope you have a whole year of pixie-dusted fun with your family as you explore the magic!

    Keep Disney Dreaming,

    Kathy K.

Meet the Panelist: Kathy, Florida

I've lived my whole life just an hour's drive from Walt Disney World, so I've been a regular visitor for as long as I can remember. Even after all these years and so many visits, I love that there's still so much to discover! Now that I'm a mom myself, seeing my favorite place through my son's eyes has given me a whole new perspective that I enjoy sharing with other parents of young children. Learn More About Kathy
